White Birch Center

About White Birch!
Our Vision is to enrich life and strengthen community. 
Our Mission is to be a community leader in providing exceptional programs and services that support learning and active living for children, adults, and families.

White Birch Center began as Crayon College, a cooperative preschool center, in 1974.  Through the commitment and passion of founder, Lucia Evans, it expanded to White Birch Community Center in 1982.  As a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, White Birch has evolved over 40 years in its dedication to enriching lives throughout the greater Henniker area.
White Birch Center is dedicated to the well-being of individuals and families and having a positive effect on the fabric of our community.  With an emphasis on Early Learning, Extended Education, and Active Living, White Birch Center is the cornerstone of our community and a hub for surrounding towns.

We are the largest nonprofit agency and licensed child care facility operating in Henniker.  We serve families with children, ages 12 months through 14 years of age, and senior adults.  Last year, more than 150 families enrolled in our programs for child care, pre-school, enrichment activities, and vacation & summer camps.  More than 300 seniors participated in a wide variety of programs and activities aimed at promoting wellness, healthy aging, and community engagement. These individuals and families live in Henniker, Bradford, Hillsborough, Antrim, Deering, Contoocook, Concord, Hopkinton, Warner, and Washington, and Weare.
White Birch Center recognizes and responds to the needs of those we serve.  We are an active leader in shaping future generations, improving and extending quality of life, and strengthening families. These core responsibilities, shape and drive our commitment to being an integral part of a strong and vibrant community.
